What’s included?

7 Nights Celestyal cruise

Included only during the shore excursions

Shore excursions include:

Bosphorus Cruise and Spice Market, Istanbul

Duration: Half Day

The mighty Bosphorus, like Istanbul itself, belongs to two continents. It flows between Europe and Asia and connects the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara. The two parts of Istanbul are linked by the Galata Bridge and the Ataturk Bridge, named after the father of modern Turkey. There are many vantage points for experiencing a wonderful Istanbul perspective and the water is most definitely one of them. Our excursion features a private tender boat gliding along the busy Bosphorus (which comes from a Thracian word meaning ‘passage of the cow’) the Occident to one side and the Orient on the other. There is plenty to see on land and on the sea. We pass the palaces of Dolmabahce and Cirgan. Our excursion fi nishes with a distinct change of pace. After the calm of a river journey we head for the hustle and bustle of the spice market, one of the oldest and largest covered markets in the world.

Louise
Cruising the Greek Islands

Review for: Aegean Circle Cruise Athens - Athens

We book a Celestyal Cruise through Sun Island Tours for August 2020, Unfortunately due to the circumstances of COVID we had to post pone. We were lucky enough to had book through Sun Island Tours who stayed in touch without through the last 2 years and helped our re organise our plans for 2022. It was nice to see that a company actually cared about us and ensured we still got to travel in the future. During times like these we really appreciated this and won't hesitate to ever book with them. Fast forward to May 2022 we finally got to embark on our Greek Cruise. The staff were so warm and welcoming, It was so nice to see things finally going back to normal. The cruise overall was excellent value for money. Nothing too fancy but perfect for us. We are sad to be home but we are already planning our next holiday to Croatia.

Celestyal Cruises is a great way to see

Review for: Greece and Turkey Cruise Athens - Athens

Celestyal Cruises is a great way to see the Greek Islands. The ships are older, however they are clean and well maintained, crew is nice, food is very good, tours are extremely interesting and schedules are kept. Plan to travel on the cruise line again.

Greek Cruise

Review for: Aegean Circle Cruise Athens - Athens

The itinerary was perfect, and so were the excursions and guides. The majority of the crew was friendly, but some were not. We enjoyed the tours and the destinations, but we were very disappointed with the food and the included drink selection. Also, it forced us to eat on the Islands if you wanted to spend any additional time after the excursion because they cut off the lunch after 2 pm. I have never been on a cruise that did not offer many options for eating any time you wanted, but not on this cruise! It was our anniversary, so we chose the most expensive suite with a large balcony. The cabin was very nice and would recommend this option if you decide to go on this ship. This cruise was our first trip to Greece, and it was gorgeous. I recommend you go to the Islands as we did, but I cannot recommend this ship.
